This comment examines the status in Washington of the implied warranty of habitability as applied to the sale of new houses. The comment will explore the identity of the builder-vendor, the general nature of the warranty, and its specific elements. The Washington warranty is contrasted to those of other jurisdictions, suggestions are made for its modification, and a model statutory warranty is proposed.
